2 years after the referendum and less than 1 year until what used to be the hard deadline for Brexit negotiations to be completed and our government finally deigns to tell their public what their Brexit vision actually is.
I feel like we should have gotten this a lot sooner. Say… at least before the general election the PM called where she campaigned on getting the electorate to trust her with Brexit.
Today I put a £5 bet on Theresa May being replaced as Prime Minister in 2019.
Would have done this year but I feel like the harridan’s going to hang on through to the new year, but sometime next year when the finalisation of her Brexit plan gets repeatedly fucked over by her own incompetence is when she’ll probably finally fuck off.
I don’t think any of her MPs, while publicly slagging her plan off, want the hassle of having to replace her while Brexit is still being negotiated. They’ll wait until afterwards, claim the deal she got was shit (which it will be for myriad reasons, not least of which is her aforementioned incompetence) then challenge her for the leadership.
I would have put a double on who her replacement is but the going favourite is Jacob Rees-Mogg and I don’t think I could live with myself if I made money off of that cretinous fuckbasket in any way.
Neither of them respond because they’re so set on Brexit being an unstoppable necessity that to even debate the specifics is a waste of time.
Jeremy Corbyn turns up and is purposely as vague as possible promising a nice, snuggly, lovely Brexit that gives everyone jobs and creates a utopia despite never saying how, and Amber Rudd turns up to stand in for Theresa May and proceeds to scream “Brexit means Brexit” in an increasingly hysterical and desperate voice.
Personally I don’t see it going anywhere. According to those who hold power Brexit must happen because of reasons and any attempt to even discuss the actual details of it is an evil attempt to usurp democracy at best and openly declaring traitorous war against the UK at worst.
Brexit will barrel ahead regardless like the rampaging colossal idiotic monster that it is and anyone attempting to be reasonable about it will be forever shouted down.
